Welcome. Millar is a good idea for the platoon.
Who Plays RF?
Griffey with Deno in CF
Who Plays 2B?
Freel with Brendon Harris or Brandon Phillips with Macier Izturis or a similar acquisition at SS.
Who Becomes Closer?
My wish is that the Reds use money to take on contracts that have a couple years left and not blow it on long term signings. I would take on Kyle Farnsworth if the Yankees are dumping. If not, I try Speier but he may be tough to get.
Who is #3 Starter?
Aaron Heilman, Kevin Correia or Horacio Ramirez would be my reasonably priced trade targets. If I splurge on a Free Agent, then I like Padilla better than Lilly. Wolfe would be ok if less than $6 Million per year for say 3 years.
Who Improves the bench?
Scott Hatteberg. The Reds go get some one to play 1B for a year or less until Votto is ready. I Like Luis Gonzalez. If I platoon with Hat or Votto, I like Eduardo Perez or Tigs idea of Millar.
